3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This was poured into a pilsener glass.
The appearance was a slight hazy burnt brown color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light messy lacing sticking and then sliding down into the beer.
The smell started off with a sharp sweet breadiness rolling over some nutty malts. Lager yeast shows a nice sweet effect.
The taste was mainly sweet with a slight smokey effect rolling over in flavor. A slight roasty to sweet aftertaste rolls into the aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation runs fairly smooth with a decent sharp nuttiness hitting my tongue.
Overall, as a Munich Dunkel, it works. I’d have again and it could definitely be a decent food beer. Maybe closer to dessert.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Gorgeous reddish-amber pour under a long lasting mocha colored head. The aroma has a bit of burnt malts, yeasty notes, thin chocolate, and earthy hops. Lighter body. The taste is smooth, slightly sweet but more bitter as it goes along.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
En fut à la brasserie.
De couleur brune, la mousse ne colle pas beaucoup. Les arômes sont fumés avec des notes de fruits des champs. Au goût, les sucres du malt ressortent bien en y laissant s’échapper des accents de mélasse de petits fruits, de caramel. Très relevé comme goût. La texture est un peu mince cependant.
